A fully fenced 30-acre horse farm, located minutes from downtown Birmingham, is the setting for a luxury three-bedroom home showcasing contemporary style. The custom home was designed by John Klein and built by Vic Wiggins in 1988, and extensive renovations were completed in 2003 using renowned Birmingham architect Richard Pigford. “This exquisite and unique home is gorgeous,” RealtySouth-Mountain Brook Village Realtor Kerri Culotta shares. “The owners bought the property 30 years ago and have created a premiere dressage horse farm and majestic estate.” The estate is accessed via a winding entrance that opens to reveal the home’s copper-clad metal roof and wooden shudders. Also on the expansive property, you’ll find a swimming pool, high-end horse barn and apartment, pastures, a dressage arena, stocked pond and walking trails — only a few of the many perks of this recently listed home.

The property is home to a contemporary-style house surrounded by inspiring views. A brick courtyard welcomes you to the home, and the main entrance opens to the foyer and dining room.

Soaring ceilings, pristine white walls, travertine flooring and walls of windows are hallmarks of the home’s interior design. A bright, open layout on the first floor features a grand foyer as well as an elegant banquet-size dining room, spacious family room and custom kitchen with breakfast area. Offering views of the home’s sprawling surroundings, the windows allow natural light to flood the space. “This home was built to enjoy the horses from every window!” Kerri explains.

The travertine stairwell off the dining room leads upstairs, to a den. “The second level has a cozy private den with bamboo flooring and is perfect for reading or watching movies,” Kerri tells us.

Modern elegance is at home in the master suite, located on the first floor, where a sloped ceiling and floor-to-ceiling windows enhance the design. In the master bathroom, a custom vanity is situated between a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The suite is also home to his-and-her walk-in custom closets and access to the rear terrace. Downstairs, two additional bedrooms boast ensuite bathrooms. Each of the rooms opens to a covered terrace, which is only steps away from the pool.

Plus, a four-car garage features a full workshop and access to an attic, with additional storage space.

The contemporary design continues downstairs with the use of travertine flooring and a neutral color palette.

“The lovely terrace and pool pavilion overlook the natural water pool and are the perfect places to entertain guests while enjoying the incredible views,” Kerri continues. The pool is easily accessed from the rear of the home and sits only steps away from the horse barn while providing sweeping views of the property and its lush landscape. “This property is a gardener’s dream,” Kerri adds. “This landscaping features Japanese maples, Lenten roses, boxwoods, crepe myrtles, magnolias, hydrangeas, hollies, plus natural wooded areas with horse and walking trails.”

In building the barn, no detail was overlooked. Custom-built to house seven stalls, plus a charming apartment, the barn is far from ordinary. “The barn apartment is truly a lovely and cozy place for visiting guests or your caretaker. It includes a living area with a fireplace, bedroom, kitchenette, full bath and a patio. It was built with a viewing window to watch the foaling areas,” Kerri explains. Behind the barn, an equipment shed offers ample storage for farm equipment, and there is a parking area for the horse trailer. A premier equestrian dressage arena and two pastures provide additional space for the horses and their riders to roam.
